Bus trips back to another era

First published in News

A BUS will take passengers on a trip down memory lane.

Brighton and Hove Buses will launch its new seafront service Route 10 on Sunday, featuring a vintage red double-decker com- plete with conductor.

Colin Curtis, aka RML 2317, began life in 1965 with the London Transport country bus department’s Godstone bus garage in Surrey and joined Brighton and Hove Buses in 2009.

The new service, which will run until Saturday September 13, will set off from Brighton Station, pass the Brighton Pavilion and take in the seafront between Brighton Pier and King Alfred Leisure Centre.

It runs every hour and is timed to meet the incoming and departing London train services from Brighton Station.

Thanks tweety72, not a bad price. A must do, for nostalgic reasons. Best weekdays if it runs during the week.

1965....the year the government decided to stop English people complaining about foreigners by bringing in a Race Law.


Homosexuality was still an offence, and rightly so...


Yes, I want to go back there
